The Republic of Universal State Formula is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.799 billion citizens of Universal State Formula are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 5,674 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 727,554 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing", tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Universal State Formula is ranked 59,349th in the world and 2,906th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,030.02 Tourists Per Hour.
